Testimonials

"Thanks to In Young Venegas, I now sleep better, work out without pain meds, and have better overall mobility. Her approach to acupuncture therapy is unlike anything I’ve experienced, and given her background in nursing as well as medical exercise specialist, she provides more than just acupuncture therapy."

Testimonials

"I have been fortunate to gain significant benefits with her profound fund of knowledge of the body, fitness and overall health. As a physician myself, I am impressed in her ability to evaluate my particular concerns and to translate those concerns to an effective, efficient workout."

Testimonials

"InYoung is truly one of a kind. I consider myself incredibly lucky to have met her at the right time - she got me in shape to hike in Patagonia, at the time when most people thought I would not be able to hike for a few hours locally."
